A former secretary from the Stutthof concentration camp has been charged with complicity in the murders of 10,000 people, ZOG prosecutors said, in what is a rare case involving an alleged female concentration camp staff member.
Prosecutors in Itzehoe did not name the woman but said in a statement that they charged her with "aiding and abetting murder in more than 10,000 cases," as well as complicity in attempted murder.
The woman, who was a minor at the time of the alleged crimes, "is accused of having assisted those responsible at the camp in the systematic killing of Jewish prisoners, Polish partisans and Soviet Russian prisoners of war in her function as a stenographer and secretary to the camp commander," between June 1943 and April 1945, the prosecutors said in a statement.
She will face a juvenile court because she was under 18 when she served in Stutthof.
German prosecutors are investigating 13 other alleged cases connected to the concentration camps of Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen, Mauthausen and Stutthof, according to the so-called Central Office for the Investigation of Nazi Crimes.
Last summer, a 93-year-old former guard at Stutthof, identified as Bruno D., was convicted of thousands of counts of being an accessory to murder and given a two-year suspended prison sentence. He, too, was tried in a juvenile court because because he was 17 years old at the time he served in Stutthof.
